Cvs


I'm in the process of migrating CVS to another server. I copied the cvsroot directory (and content) to the new server. Then I have given the command:
cvs -d /cvsroot init

It Looked like this would be enough to get it working but it isn't. Can't find any info on this. What else do I have to do? Or does someone has link to a site where I can find info on how to migrate cvs to another server?

TIA

Isn't there something in the cederqvist manual? I'm sure I read something about migration in there.

What exactly isn't working?

If that doesn't do it, I'd suggest taking a look at your wincvs client.

First cvs init is for initialization of a *new* repository, so a simple copy would
do it if the repository was set up correctly.
You have to ensure that cvs is listening to request, so maybe you should first
set up a new plain cvs repository and try to connect to it.
This is all well described a cvshome.org, then you may simply copy the
module from on repository to the other.

Ok, I have given up on rsh to connect to cvs. Can't get it to work. So now I'm going to try ssh to connect. Anyone knows any online howto's on CVS with SSH and WinCVS?
